Panel Sessions

Public Art & Creating a Cultural Commons

The pandemic has forced many of us to reconsider traditional art delivery platforms, and now is an ideal time to discuss art that lives outside the four walls of a museum. Public art interacts with people from all walks of life, consists of different artistic practices, and exists temporarily or permanently. It can fuel conversations about our culture’s past, present and future. When done well, it can bring people together, transforming mundane public spaces into vibrant cultural commons. In conversation with public art managers, we will explore what public art can do and what’s next. 

Reimagining Community and Collaboration between Arts Leaders 

A discussion about leading arts programs in an academic setting as Department Chairs. Topics will range from advocacy and funding to education and marketing the program. In the world of STEM, how are the arts in higher education changing, and how do they bridge the gap to the world of for/nonprofit arts? Together we’ll explore the challenges that are unique to the academic setting, and how they relate to the arts industry.
